SU Secret Garden with Delightful Dozen

Happy Monday, friends! I fell in love again with the SU Secret Garden stamp set this weekend. It is just so pretty and comes with framelits that make cutting a breeze! I peeked over at Freshly Made Sketches # 129  and was inspired to make this card for my mommy.

SU Field Flowers with Wetlands

Yea! We get to pair up our own color choice with Gumball Green

this week at the Dynamic Duos # 96!



I chose to use Calypso Coral, one of my favorite colors. I just love the SU Field Flowers stamp set but this is the fist time it has seen ink!  Lovely thing about stamps- they never spoil- they just sit there waiting to be used…lol.

SU Simply Sketched

Sara has a watercoloring color challenge for us this week at the Friday Mashup # 153 . You can use aqua painters, blender pens or any other tools to create a watercolor effect. You can mash it up by using Perfect Plum, Wild Wasabi, and Daffodil Delight.


Create a project using the colors “Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi & Perfect Plum”.
Create a project using “an Aqua Painter or a Blender Pen to create a Watercolor Effect”.
Or mash it up and create a project with the “Colors above & a Watercolor Effect”.

I used markers and blender pens to create my CAS mashed up watercolor look.

SU Take Care

I had a few minutes this morning to play in my stamp center. The sun is shining although it is very cold. I was in the mood for a light and airy spring card so I pulled out the SU Take Care set. I was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches # 128 . Think springy thoughts Pennsylvanians!
